The seat may detach, posing a fall hazard

TOMY International of Oak Brook, Ill., is recalling about 85,850 Boon Flair and Flair Elite highchairs sold in the U.S and Canada.

The bolts used to secure the seat of the highchair to the pedestal base can become loose and allow the seat to detach, posing a fall hazard.

The firm has received 34 reports of the chair separating from the base, including 24 falls resulting in 11 injuries such as bruising or scratches.

This recall involves Boon Flair highchairs manufactured before September 2016, and all Boon Flair Elite highchairs.

The Flair Elite highchair has a white and orange molded plastic seat with a white tray and metal pedestal base.

The Flair highchairs have a gray plastic pedestal base and were sold in 10 color combinations, including blue/white, white/orange, pink/white, green/white, gray/green, white, gray, white/gray, white/blue and red/white.

A list of the model numbers of the recalled highchairs may be found here.

The model number and manufacturing date code are printed on a label located under the base of the highchair.

The highchairs, manufactured in China, were sold at Bed Bath & Beyond, Target, Toys ‘R’ Us, and other stores nationwide, and online at Amazon.com, Target.com, Walmart.com, and BedBathAndBeyond.com.

The Flair Elite was sold from 2008, to 2009, for about $380. The Flair models were sold from January 2008, through February 2017, for between $230 and $250.
